6 Could you really be Framed for a Crime?
The key points of the documentary:
Kennedy Brewer’s Accusation: The documentary focuses on Kennedy Brewer, who was accused of murdering his girlfriend’s three-year-old daughter. He is subsequently convicted of capital murder based on bite mark evidence, a form of forensic evidence that has been controversial due to its unreliability.
Bite Mark Evidence: The case against Brewer is built primarily on bite mark evidence, which was used to link him to the crime scene. Bite mark evidence involves comparing bite marks found on a victim’s body to the dental impressions of a suspect. This method has faced criticism for its lack of scientific validity and potential for error.
Innocence Project’s Investigation: The Innocence Project, an organization dedicated to exonerating wrongfully convicted individuals, takes an interest in Brewer’s case. They begin investigating the evidence and methodology used in his conviction.
Similarity to Levon Brooks’ Case: During their investigation, the Innocence Project discovers striking similarities between Brewer’s case and the case of Levon Brooks. Brooks had also been convicted of murdering a child based on bite mark evidence.
DNA Evidence: Through the efforts of the Innocence Project, DNA evidence is reexamined in both cases. This reexamination leads to the identification of another man who is linked to the crimes through DNA evidence, implicating him as the actual perpetrator.
Exoneration: As a result of the new DNA evidence, both Kennedy Brewer and Levon Brooks are exonerated and released from prison after serving years for crimes they did not commit. Their convictions are overturned, and they are proven innocent of the charges.
Impact and Reflection: The documentary likely highlights the broader implications of relying on questionable forensic evidence and the importance of advancements in DNA technology in ensuring justice. It also sheds light on the flaws in the criminal justice system that can lead to wrongful convictions.
Mississippi Innocence a film by Joe York
Mississippi Innocence tells the story of Levon Brooks and Kennedy Brewer, two men who combined spent over thirty years behind bars for crimes they did not commit.
FEATURED REVIEW 10/10
Excellent film – needs to be shown far and wide. INNOCENT people are sitting on Mississippi’s death row RIGHT NOW!
This is an eye-opening film for those who aren’t aware of what has been going on for decades in the state of Mississippi– innocent people sitting in Mississippi prisons and even death row for crimes they did not commit. Kennedy Brewer and Levon Brooks, the two men portrayed in this film, are only the tip of the iceberg. RIGHT NOW there are people sitting on death row – people like JEFFREY HAVARD– who are innocent of the crimes they have been convicted of yet the state of Mississippi plans to execute them. This film is a compelling, factually accurate account of how two innocent men spent a combined 30 years in prison, one of them on death row, before DNA exonerated both of them. This film needs to be shown far and wide because members of the public need to know that this is happening in our courts right now
